Saving feels drilled into me. Not so much money (though that’s always a good thing) but items. Keep them for later. For when you can really enjoy it. For when it’s right to use them. If I use it now, it might be wrong and I might not enjoy it.
I wouldn’t use novelty erasers because then they would be wasted. (I’m not quite sure how, but I ended up with a small box of them in my house the other year from my childhood.)
I had better save it for something else. A better time. A better place.
You know what I did with all those novelty erasers?
Pretty sure I either threw them out or gave them to someone. Either way, they’re not in my linen cupboard anymore.
I’m making an effort this year to use things that I’ve bought for me. I will be using the notebooks that I bought.
Now, if anyone can convince me to use my leather-bound, parchment style notebook, you’ll have achieved a great victory.
Do you struggle to use “good” things, or do you dive right in when you get them?
